The popularity of Maxi’s restaurants is spilling over South Africa’s borders into neighbouring countries. The first cross-border stores recently opened in Mahalapye, Botswana, under the ownership of franchisee Tiro Seloma, and in Maputo, Mozambique, by franchisee, Cladio Langa. Yolandi Ferreira, Maxi’s marketing manager, says the opening of these two stores is a direct response to increasing demand for the “Maxi’s formula” in other southern African countries and that several more stores are likely to open in the region before the end of this year. As a family restaurant offering a wide range of tasty meals in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, Maxi’s has made its mark with outstanding, freshly prepared food of the best quality in an environment that is accommodating to children and provides families with a relaxed, casual dining experience with quick, attentive service. “Since our Botswana store opened its doors, we’ve already had requests from would-be franchisees to open stores in other parts of that country,” says Ferreira. “Our research has shown that the entire menu appeals to the population in our neighbouring countries and, as in South Africa, there is a particular demand for grill-based meals, which Maxi’s offers throughout the day.” Maxi’s franchisees are assisted throughout the entire franchising relationship and receive robust training, support and assistance with managing their restaurants. This continued support is implemented to equip franchisees with the necessary expertise to run their businesses on a full time basis, which is required under the franchise agreement. “The franchise model remains one of the safest ways of becoming a business owner as it is guided by tried and tested processes, underpinned by the ongoing support of the franchisor,” concludes Ferreira. “The system is proven, so there is no need to reinvent the wheel. Maxi’s successful franchising model is based on mutually respectful franchisee/franchisor relationships driven by . . .
While there are many things in South Africa that speak to the heart of its people, nothing is as popular as a good ol’ braai. South Africans love to braai. Why? Because to us, a braai is more than a meal. It’s a celebration of our culture. It’s an experience that is loaded with the more than just the flavour of good food, but includes good company too. Across race, language, region and religion, we all share one common heritage. Although the ingredients may differ, the one thing that never changes is that when South Africans have something to celebrate they light fires, and prepare great feasts. There is something about the open fires and the flavours it unleashes that has captured the hearts and the tastebuds of those who enjoy this mealtime gathering. Even though many braai enthusiasts prefer using charcoal and briquettes – for convenience sake – nothing beats the flavour that resonates from a wood fire. This is why people who simply love the taste of braai’ed chicken keep coming back to Zebro’s Chicken. Because any excuse to have a braai will do, more and more South Africans are bypassing the home fires and coming to Zebro’s Chicken for that incomparable taste experience, which is healthier and tastier than other fast food chicken offerings. Pertunia Tsotetsi, Marketing Manager of Zebro’s Chicken, says the South African heritage of braai’ing underpins the restaurant’s meals, answering the call to bring that home-grown flavour to an increasing number of South Africans. Unique among South African chicken restaurants because its meals are prepared over an open fire, Zebro’s Chicken serves up a distinct and delicious flavour that celebrates our South African heritage and with a scrumptious menu that includes chicken on the bone, chicken burgers, Russian-style sausages, fresh-cut chips and assorted salads – every day can be braai day. “Zebro’s Chicken meals are prepared on hot wood coals using a secret marinade and basting sauce, and sold either as a . . .

In the restaurant business, consumer trends are always changing and their tastes must be noted and accommodated. With culinary ‘revolutions’ such as the Banting and high protein diets becoming increasingly popular and the burgeoning financial middle class becoming more health conscious, more and more restaurants are reconsidering their offering to cater to their consumers’ health and lifestyle requirements. Maxi’s marketing manager, Yolandi Ferreira says this is impacting the way their restaurants traditionally offer meals. These days the distinction between breakfast, lunch and dinner is increasingly blurry, with consumers making meal choices off the menu based on what they actually feel like eating at that moment, rather than what traditional meal times dictate. Underpinning this trend in South Africa is a robust demand for grilled food throughout the day. For many South Africans grilled meat and chicken are the heart of any meal and when it’s hot off the grill, dripping with juices, it’s irresistible. Grilled foods taste very different from baked, broiled or pan-fried dishes because of the different and unique flavour compounds that are generated through the grilling process. Based on these facts, it didn’t come as a surprise to discover from recent research conducted among Maxi’s customers, that the majority would enjoy the option of ordering grilled food throughout the day. It’s all about enjoying freshly grilled meat on the bone and Maxi’s is more than happy to serve it up – at any time. At Maxi’s we pride ourselves on listening to customers and keeping up with trends. As a result our restaurants countrywide now offer grills all day long, from breakfast to dinner time. Our ongoing success is based on understanding what our customers want and using this knowledge to strategise on future menu selections. We want our customers to leave our restaurants with the feeling that they have enjoyed a really good meal, served efficiently in a relaxed . . .
KWV, an award-winning, proudly South African brand, is reawakening the spirit of the brand with the launch of it’s first ever consumer trademark brand campaign, ‘Finish Great’ that communicates the company’s proud heritage and product innovation across spirits and wines that KWV has embodied since 1918. The emotive integrated campaign kicks off today with the flighting of KWV’s first ever TV ad. KWV has a long tradition of crafting some of the finest wines and brandies in the world. This is the company’s first consumer brand campaign that stretches across the product worlds of wine and spirits to deliver a consistent brand theme that works across all touch points; providing the foundation for a bold distinctive brand message. Tyrone Beck, Creative Director at Saatchi & Saatchi Brandsrock, the ad agency tasked with developing the pioneering campaign for the brand explains: “This is a tribute to the great legacy of KWV, but also demonstrates that by standing on the shoulders of giants, we are inspired to aim higher, to reach even greater heights and inevitably ‘Finish Great’.” He adds: “The campaign idea was based on a core insight that through persistence, character is revealed and in everything we do, we strive to finish great,” says Beck. “The heart of KWV is Proud Pioneers brought to life through the spirit of: respecting tradition while challenging convention and through persistence character is revealed. We are telling this story through the campaign theme of ‘On the shoulders of giants’.” Beck continues: “Giants have stature, they are larger than life and undeniably impressive. We revere them and in South Africa, KWV is a giant, it’s a brand that has a 97 year-old history and credible credentials to support such a bold statement. “The story line follows an affirmation to the giants who enable us to Finish Great,” he adds. “We are bringing to life this story with a 360 degree approach, which we will aim to further build on the ‘Giants’ theme . . .
